About our meeting technologies
Collaboration is an important part of human interaction, where people put together their skills and energy to achieve an end result which is beneficial for everyone involved in this interaction. The most ubiquitous form of collaboration for achieving results as a group has been, both historically and currently, the face to face meeting.
However many of these meetings suffer from shortcomings fueled either by social interaction issues, or by lack of efficient collaboration, therefore the effectiveness of meetings is often lower than expected.
At CHILI, we are doing research in technologies for face to face meetings where we try to address these shortcomings. Our approach is to detect the problems, and to build appropriate technologies to mitigate them, and to offer solutions for groups of people collaborating around a meeting table to improve their effectiveness, in time, outcome, results, and resources.
